PROJECT 02: ‘Set, “CAPTURING-Dreams”, Burgeon’

Task:

Mark your pre-sleep activity and ‘Capture’ your dreams in recordings.
“You know I was curious, I was interested in all kinds of mystery or deeper meanings in the paintings because I myself have not analyzed why they have turned out like this or like that.” H.R. Giger
Students are required to identify their activities before sleep, capture/memorize their
dreams of a maximum 3 nights of sleep (min. 2 nights) OR multiple naps during the day,
translate dreams in series of artistic sketches (diary) and later, physically produce dream
model of your captured dreams based on your artistic drawings. Students MUST be able to record any key elements FROM their dreams as process in producing their ‘dream’ model:

FORM | COLOUR | TASTE | SOUND | TEXTURE | AMBIANCE | ERA | ACTIVITY | SCENT

Based on the recorded amount of drawings (diary) produced, students must converge
their total dream artistic sketches/drawings into a singular piece of drawing, based on the highlighted key elements above as a reflection and finally, the dream model itself which materials can be sourced from any that closely matches your dream into a reality model of A3 size base [297mm x 420mm x 900mm (max height)]

Submission Requirement [Individual Submission]:

Due Date : 19th October 2018
1. A4 sketches/drawings of recorded dreams (diary) of x2 – x3 nights of sleep OR multiple
pages for naps (minimum of 3 naps). Each drawing with a reflection [50 words] in A5 size.
2. A1 presentation board consists of converged dream sketches (diary) of the total sleeps/naps with the key elements highlighted. Together with rationale of [200 words] of inspiration,ideation, process and experiment.
3. Dream Model on the A3 MDF base – able to utilize any materials to achieve the dream
model accordingly into reality.

Project Outcome: 

Dream Model Narration: 

TRIVIAL COLLISION, THE TITLE FOR MY CONCEPT DESIGN.

MY DREAM SCULPTURE IS INSPIRED BY 2 OF MY DREAMS  WHICH ARE RELATED TO MY HOMETOWN AND THE NATURE. THE FIRST DREAM IS ABOUT MY HOMETOWN WHICH IS I AM EATING MEE TUARAN WITH MY CLASSMATE ON A STREET. THEN, THE OTHER DREAM IS ABOUT 4 BLACK FIGURES IN THE BUS STARING AT ,E ON A ROAD WHICH IS FLOATING ABOVE THE JUNGLE AND I AM ACTUALLY STANDING ON A HILL.

BOTH IMAGED SHOWED A LOT OF SIMILARITIES WHICH ARE VAGUE AND UNFINISH. BOTH OF THESE DREAMS SHOWING UNCLEAR VISION AND THE SITUATION CAN BE RECOGNISE BY ANALYSE THE TRIVIAL THINGS IN THE DREAMS AND AND THE SMALL THINGS IN THE DREAM IS ACTUALLY THE MAIN KEY TO FORM THE DREAM MORE.WHEN THE TRIVIAL THINGS COLLIDE WITH EACH OTHER,IT WILL CREATE A DIFFERENT RESULT.

Reflection: 

This assignment really tortured me a lot especially the process of making the dream model and the process of choosing the suitable material for the model based on the keywords of my dreams. Fortunately, my experienced on model making make me more easy on my decision towards my model’s form and material.I have chosen the wire structure to make my model’s form out and using different material of alloy/iron to wrap the model so it will be more robotic and cool. This assignment really help me gains more experienced towards model making and presentation board layout. It also impressed me on how my dreams can transformed into a model and become a inspiration for my upcoming assignment.

 

The end.

 Reflection :

From this assignment, we have to use our observation skill to observe the environment of our proposed site and need to understand everything around it even its a small thing. It’s not an easy task as we need to do research for the history of that surrounding and observe the population including the races of that proposed site.Even though it’s a very hard assignment for us, I still can overcome the problems that I faced with my group mates.  It’s a great experience for us where we can understand each other more and help to overcome our weaknesses together. I’m happy that I’m finally done 1 assignment already, Yeay !

Project 3 – Art[Live] ESCAPADE

EXPRESSION OF SPACE

INTRODUCTION

You are to design a combine space; a workplace where the end-user can work and live under the same roof, with considerations on how to fit it all in and yet achieved good comfort. This task shall give an idea how to cope with small spaces; living in a small space means to focus on good organization as well as design. The most important things to keep in mind are the functional needs, communal needs, personal needs, and privacy needs. Different combination of living are known by creating different plans of the space and using your creative mind to create multi functional furniture.

The space given will be a two-20-footer shipping containers where you can configure the
layout according to the site. The location of the project is in located in between the Royal
Belum state park that you have identified earlier [location and its surroundings] to determine exactly how your ‘escapade living’ is placed. There are also some issues like how to survive and daily activities that need to be address before we can start with the design.

Capture

The units will design on the ground/cantilever/attachment using lightweight materials for private use as:
Double Occupancy; Temporary home & working spaces; A specific user/profession &
determine his/hers of their environment: profession & environment
* You are allowed to utilize the “in-between spaces” of the containers as well as being part of the whole design ideas.


This is my final project for this semester!!!!!!!YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After i getting know about my artist – Nick Veasey and designed a portable casing for him, I need to design a container house in 1:25 scale with using only 2 containers so he can travel to there  whenever he want to escape from the hustle and bustle city life.

The container house that I designed is located in Tasik Temenggor in Royal Belum Rainforest, Perak. I choose a area which is on the lake and beside an island because he can enjoy the beauty of the oldest rainforest in Malaysia and at the same time, he can swim in the lake.Its such a enjoy trip for him whenever he go there.

In this design, I choose to overlap the 2 containers at one of the end so it can perform the “L-shaped” from the top. I designed this house with a very minimalist design same as his art works which are very minimalist and simple. The colour scheme that i used in this house grey-wish blue or blue , dark shade of brown and wood colour as the contrast for my design.

The silent pin-up “crit” fr my progress when I’m doing this project:

93bd0fb9-fb62-4392-97ca-e79e5703ec9a467d2493-e0c2-491b-a362-cd53812dd51a

As you can see from the pictures slide show below, my living room/bedroom can be rotate which is playing a role as a contrast element in my design. Its made from 2 pieces of circular planes which are the ceiling and the floor for that area make a contrast for this whole design because that’s the only area using organic shape to build.

Last but not least, I called my designed container house – INSIDE OUT.  Why? Because you can’t judge the book by its cover, same thing to this design. The main contrast thing or in the other  way to say it, “the inner beauty” of my design is not on the exterior but its in my design.

Project 2 – Inter[Active] Artist Essential

EXPLORATION OF FUNCTION AND DESIGN IDEAS 

INTRODUCTION
If the greatest naturalists and expedition leaders had not kept meticulous logs (travel journal,captured pictures, materials collection) of their adventures, their stories have would never beentold. A portable casing that can keep the writer’s essential supplies organized & securedwhile on the move give an extra mile of the writer’s journey experience.
As for the artists, that you have research on may have many of their own basic and/or unique tools, medias and other supplies as part of their artwork’s essentials. By identifying these tools & items will give an advantage in designing the artist essential casing that is also portable, easy to bring along anywhere to their desire places. The casing design may looks normal and ordinary as per existed casing have in the market.
However, for this project, it will be a custom design special made for the selected artist only and have its multiple functions and aesthetic value transform from the artist’s keywords derived from their artwork collections (done in the previous project 1). It will be a unique design owned ONLY by you!

Using different mechanisms to expand the portable casing from concealed to opened :
Sliding open; rotate; swivel;folding; rolling; assembling;inflation; modular; etc…

OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROJECT
1. Able to preliminary defined the design elements from the keywords subtracted from the previous project onto the design proposed.
2. Able to understand & apply the multi function mechanism onto the small object design.

STEPS TO BEGIN MY TASK

1.INVENTORIES !!

Listing all the tools, art media and other supplies as an inventory of
the artist’s essentials.
As per picture above, you may do the list in visual method; pictures,
sketches and identify their name and sizes.
Be SMART & CREATIVE the way you do the inventories!!

2.RESEARCH ON PORTABLE CASING DESIGN

Do research on the possibilities of designing the portable casing;
select few of examples as your case studies.
The study is mainly to identify of the workable mechanism to achieve
of functional operable for your portable casing design to expand
open and to close to its original shape.

3.START DESIGN

With the aid of many sketches and few of study models, you are to
propose several ideas of the portable casing design that custom
made for your artist.
Must apply AT LEAST min three (3) different mechanism in the design.


This is my second project for this semester and its continue the previous assignment as I need to design a portable bag for my artist – Nick Veasey.

This project is to design a compact portable bag design fro my artist to put in his essentials.

I have listed down the tools in visual method that he will bring when he is travelling. The list is as below :

New Doc 2018-07-21_3

There have 15 type of tools that he will bring.

Then, I have design a bag for him which is using the wheel method and using 3 keywords from my first project into my second project which is MONOTONE , TRANSLUCENT and CONTRAST.

New Doc 2018-07-21_4

The first design of the bag.

After the first pin-up ‘crit’ with my lecturer, I decided to minimize the tools list to become more compact or the mini version for every tools. After that, I re-design my portable design to more smaller version with many compact mechanism which is rotate , slide , rolling and etc with modular concept in it. New Doc 2018-07-21_2New Doc 2018-07-21_1

After the second tutorial for this project, I have design this bag by adding some new mechanism which is expanding. This bag design don’t have a fixed size for it but its design depend on the size of the tools.

New Doc 2018-07-21_5(2)

Final Outcome :

This is my final outcome for my second project which is the portable casing for Nick Veasey.

REFLECTION :

FROM THIS PROJECT 1B , I GOT MANY NEW EXPERIENCE WITH MY FRIENDS AS WHOLE CLASS WENT TO PENANG ISLAND TO DO THIS PROJECT. WE HAVE NOTICED THE LIFESTYLE AND THE CULTURE IN PENANG ARE REALLY DIFFERENT FROM OUR PLACE. MOST OF THEM REALLY LIKE THEIR TRADITION AND TRY THEIR HARD TO PASS THE TRADITION TO THEIR NEXT GENERATION.HOWEVER, THEY NOT REALLY AGREE TO BUILD ANY HIGH-RISED BUILDING NEARBY THEIR PLACE AS IT CAN DESTROYED NEARLY 50 TRADITION SHOP HOUSES FOR 1 HIGH-RISED MODERN BUILDING. I HOPE WE CAN DO THIS KIND OF PROJECT MORE IN THE FUTURE SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND MALAYSIA MORE BETTER.
